The combine shows he is a good athlete. Not a freak of an athlete.

Here's a summary ...

https://www.nfl.com/prospects/sutton-smi...9db721f480

Some ouches in there...

Weaknesses
Built like a WILL linebacker
Looked out of place at Senior Bowl
Frequently ragdolled by tackles in practice
Likely candidate for a new position
Needs to prove ability to handle cover duties
Instincts appear to be average
Struggles counter and defeat move blocks that stick him
Quick, but lacks sideline-to-sideline speed
Lateral agility is below average for linebacker

Sources Tell Us

"He's too tiny to stay at rush backer. The poor kid's pro day is going to be interesting because they are going to have him working with every position group trying to find a new position for him." -- Personnel director for NFC team

And all these critiques won’t mean a thing when he’s kicking ass in the NFL. I think they forget that he went up against Scharping every day in practice. Scharping is one of the best O-lineman in this draft.

It amazes me how many NFL scouts post on this board.

RE: NFL Combine predictions for SS
Mel Kiper was on Chicago radio this afternoon (Carmen & Jurko show) and was asked about the 2 NIU players at the Combine.

About Max: Kiper said that Polian compared him to Diem and that his versatility virtually guarantees him to go in the 3rd or 4th Round at the latest. Considering he was projected as a 4th Round prospect by most prior to the Combine, it appears Max raised his stock a bit.

About Sutton: "I watched him run, he can get up and down quickly, he's always hustling. He's quick, he gets through the drills well but the short arms are going to be the issue. You get into the middle rounds, late rounds of the draft with Special Teams, he's shown great pass rush ability. He certainly has an opportunity to stick on a roster. More of a Day 3 type of pick."

Mel didn't discount him being drafted like he did other players he was asked about, so Sutton may go undrafted but there's probably enough "buzz" around him that he'll go late rounds.

Maybe Belichick will use one of his five 7th Round picks the Pats always seem to collect on draft day on him.

Random thought but had Jawuan Johnson stayed a HUSKIE and not gone to TCU he could have gotten an invite to the combine. Oh well. Lol
